Representative Text

1 Strangers, we have come to greet you
In the name of God’s dear Son;
Will you labor in His vineyard?
Will you help His work along?
Jesus bids you, Jesus bids you,
He has work for every one;
Jesus bids you, Jesus bids you,
Bids you labor till He come.

2 Christians, we have come to help you
Sow the seed while yet ’tis day;
Will you help us in our labors—
Trusting Jesus for your pay?
Jesus bids you, Jesus bids you,
Bids you work for Him today;
Jesus bids you, Jesus bids you,
Bids you work, and He’ll repay.

3 Sinners, we have come to ask you
Seek the Savior while you may,
Will you heed the invitation?
Will you come and seek today?
Jesus bids you, Jesus bids you,
Bids you seek and not delay;
Jesus bids you, Jesus bids you.
He will help you all the way.
